  • Trivia

    • How did the perp get into his cab on the ferris wheel? Watch the sequence carefully. Sharona gets in and Monk rotates the ferris wheel so Sharona's cab goes about three to four positions up from the ground. Then the perp climbs out of the cab directly across the wheel from her. That means his cab was straight up at the top of the wheel when Sharona got in. The ferris wheel isn't running when he makes his escape. So how'd he get to the cab on the top of the ferris wheel without anyone seeing him before Monk started the wheel?
